Even artificial blondes have more fun!

Hair coloring

As a hair chameleon, I can tell you first hand that the world treats people very differently based on their haircolor (whether inherited or created.)  I also have observed that if you are getting lots of positive feedback from the world, it is easier to be confident. (We’ve talked about that here before.)

To dye for: Blondes really do have more fun as study reveals women with lighter hair have more confidence

It has long been reckoned that blondes have more fun – but now they are thought to be more confident and amorous too.

Scientists claim their research shows that bleaching hair does wonders for a woman’s self-image.

They feel more attractive, more likely to ask someone out on a date and become more adventurous in the bedroom.

Read the rest here.

I would love to hear your stories of how haircolor changed your life.

    As a life long brunette (sometimes a little lighter, a little redder, or a little darker), I’ve always been thought of as the “stable” friend, etc. I am the girl you settle down with, the girl you marry, the reliable girl, the girl that will make your life whole.

    Now, as far a blonde goes, you know, I am so dark (I’m Hawaiian) blonde hair would look ridiculous on me. In fact, super stupid, so that’s not been a choice.

    Aura, you know me, and my coloring–prove me wrong?

    Ever Grateful to Aura and Azarra,

    @Kim: The “stable” label is only a problem if you feel it doesn’t suit you!

    I am a fan of hair color reflecting the true inner self. But I do think that everyone should try to have “lighter” hair than is normal for them at least once to see if they perceive a difference in the way the world treats them.

    Some people like the difference and some can’t wait to go back to their more somber shade.

    I can’t pull blonde off. Even with Aura’s special touch. Thankfully, I don’t want to. I will go all gray before I go all blonde.

    I will say that I always had more attention when my hair was blonde. I am in the ocean and the sun all the time, so having dark hair just doesn’t work. I stick with blonde highlights and even I get a lift just from my blonde highlights. Not sure why. Now if I had the courage to have short hair, I would keep my hair blonde all the time 🙂
